Boys Catch Messages
on Wireless Station
An indication of the Inventive genius
of the younger generation is seen in the
erection of wireless apparatus by
several boys of Harrisburg and its
vicinity. One of these is Jack Hart,
•■ion of Lane S. Hart, of Duncannon,
who has been interested for some
time in the erection of a wireless sta
tion on the top of his home at Dun
'•annon. His aerial Is sixty-five feet
high and being located on the top of
a hill, great receiving range is ob
tained. He is at present increasing
the height of one aerial mast from
thirty to fifty feet and with this im
provement he expects to send a great
deal farther and receive anything
within a radius of three thousand
miles. At the present time he can
only send fifteen or twenty miles.
Young Hftrt Is at his station every
night and hears anything and every
thing from press reports to weather
forecasts. Some of the places he has
heard from are Arlington sending
time signals, New London sending
Block Tsland weather reports, the
John Wanamaker New York store,
Sayvllle, Long Island and in clear
weather Tampa and Key West.
He Is not able to send very far as
his transformer only draws 660 watts
and the United States government
only allows 1,000 watts. Other boys
interested in wireless in town are

LOSES EQUIPNIEirr IN
A BRIAN RIVER
Although No Concern Is Felt For
Safety of Former President
Friends Seeking Advices
By Associated Press
New York, March 23. —Colonel The
odore Roosevelt's family and friends
were anxiously awaiting further ad
vices to-day regarding the accident by
which his party lost its entire equip
ment in the rapids of a Brazilian river.
While no concern, it was stated, was
felt for the safety of the former Presi
dent, it was desirable to learn just how
and when the accident occurred and
whether or not the expedition would
be abandoned, especially as the party
was so far from a base where new
equipment could be acquired.
The news of the mishap came in a
brief message from Anthony Mala, a
member of the party. It was dated at
Sar.tarem, Brazil, yesterday, and read.
"We have lost everything in the
rapids. Telephone my wife of my

AND NURSE; THEY
ASK FOfiJEW TRIAL
Sealed Verdict Returned to Judge
Kunkel at Opening of
After deliberating for five hours Sat
urday night a March term criminal
jury convicted Dr. John T. Ensminger,
Jr., a well-known druggist, and Miss
Martha Osten, a trained nurse, of seri
ous charges growing out of the phar
macist's marital Infidelity.
The verdict was returned, sealed, to
President Judge Kunkel at the opening
of court this morning.
Ex-District Attorney John Fox
Wei3s, chief counsel for the defense,
asked for an extension of time in
which to file reason; for a new trial.
Judge Kunkel directed counsel to
make the application to Judge John
son, Union-Snyder district, who con
ducted the trial while specially pre
siding in Dauphin quarter sessions In
I the absence of Judge McCarrell last
I week. Mr. Weiss will make his appli
cation to Judge Johnson in writing
I and if permission to file the reasons
be allowed, the transcribing of the tes
timony will be undertaken at once.
Under ordinary circumstances four
days' time Is allowed in which to file
reasons for a new trial.
Jail Penalty Provided
The crime for which Dr. Ensminger
was convicted Is punishable by a jail
sentence; the lesser crime of which the
nurse was found guilty does not neces
sitate a jail sentence, but a miximum
fine of SIOO.
Pending the decision as to whether
a new trial will be granted sentence
was not imposed to-day.
The Ensminger-Osten trial excited
wide-spread Interest throughout the
city In view of the standing of the de-
I fendants. The trial lasted several
days and some of the high-lights of
the testimony was the evidence
of pretty Mrs. Fred Long. She
occupied the same apartments with
Miss Ostend. Additional Interest
attached to har story In view of her
own rather recent appearance In court
In divorce proceedings against her hus
band. She told a tale at that time of
having been spanked by her husband
ivith « hair brush—business side up.
The Ensmlnger-Ostend jury it is un
derstood, balloted six times before ar
riving at a verdict On the first bal
lots the twelve stood Beven to five for
On the fourth and fifth ballots, two
more turned In for conviction and the
vote stood nine to three. On the final

Only a Few Towns Remain Be

Hy Associated Press
Bermejillo, Durango, Mexico, (Con
stitutionalist Field Base), March 23. —
(Torreon)—Marked by sharp brushes
with the enemy. General Franclßco
' spectacular march against Torreon.
which began last Friday, was nearing
an end to-day. Only a few haciendas
and suburban towns remained be
tween his army of 12,000 and the ac
tual siege of Torreon. At no point
does the rebel leader expect to meet
strong resistance, unless it be at Lerdo,
a short distance north of Torreon. Re
ports are that a more or less formid
able garrison of Federals has been
placed by General Fefugio Velasco in
Lerdo, to check thi Constitutionalists.
| Cerro La Pila, a huge mountain
which oversluulows Gomez Palacio and
which is supposed to be fortified by
the Federals, Is the only other mat
ter of concern to General Villa, but
he does not believe that any consider
able body of soldiers would detach
j themselves from the main army at
[Torreon, more than three miles from
ithe mountains. With the possible ex
ception of the reported garrison at
S Eerdo, a defending party on Ea Pila
would have- no support, and General
Villa believes It would have to fall back
on Torreon after a long range defense
with the big guns which are said to
be planted on the mountainside.
Villa is confident that only a few
more hours and little fighting will pass
before his army is Investing Torreon
proper. He maintains that his force
Is so great a.': to comparatively over
whelm any outposts which they may
meet before reaching the city of Tor
reon, believing that General Velasco
has kept the Torreon garrison Intact
to repel the rebel advance.
The skirmishes which the rebels
have already engaged have been more
like play than a part of war. They
have seemingly delighted in cavalry
charges agai.st the Federal outposts.
